While many new requirements are involved, the new health care reform law has created business opportunities for hospitals, primary care networks and individual medical practitioners. As a full service benefits administration firm, ACA can help you capitalize on these opportunities by participating in one or more Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs).
While the Accountable Care Organization concept will continue to evolve, it is a collaborative organization that cares for a defined population of health care needs and agrees to be held accountable for attaining measurable quality improvements and meeting cost targets.
As a connected, collaborative team, unnecessary tests and adverse drug reactions can be reduced and more common errors can be avoided. When higher quality outcomes and lower costs are achieved, payers, providers and hospitals can thrive.
